HAYES & Yeading will be aiming to pounce on any Grimsby Town complacency in tomorrow's daunting trip to Blundell Park.
Grimsby boss Neil Woods has taken steps to ensure his side do not take it easy as he insisted that the visit of Garry Haylock's men is no “foregone conclusion”.
Hayes visit Humberside on the back of a 5-0 thrashing at Eastbourne Borough and they will face a hostile reception on Saturday against relegated Football League side Grimsby, who had over 5,000 fans for their midweek home match against York City.
But Woods said: “Some people have said this is our first proper Conference game and that might be right.
“They won’t have a massive following and I’m sure everyone at Hayes will admit their aim is just to stay in this league.
“But we’ll treat them with the same respect we did Crawley and York and won’t be underestimating them.
“Some people may think it’s a foregone conclusion and I’ve heard some fans looking to the Darlington game, but we aren’t – this is our next game and the most important right now.
“Yes, they lost 5-0 on Tuesday, but I know that two games are never the same.”
Hayes boss Haylock (pictured) is certain to make changes after Tuesday night's debacle at Eastbourne, but both Jamie Hand and Daniel Wishart are both still ruled out through suspension.
Grimsby are expected to have both Charles Ademano and Lewis Goben fit after injury.
